    What about Emma Galvin and Keith Nobbs ’s performance did you like?

    Emma is an amazing Narrator. She always makes the characters have depth as she reads. So far I have listened to 6 books she has performed by different authors and enjoyed everyone.

    Kate Sanderson has been burned by love. From now on, she thinks, I will control my own destiny, and I will be reasoned and rational. But life has other things in store for Kate. Namely, a summer abroad studying Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet in the very town where the star-crossed lovers met, Verona, Italy. Kate is thrown together with two other American teens and three Italians for a special seminar - and for volunteer duty at the Juliet Club, where they answer letters from the lovelorn around the world. Can Kate's cool logic withstand the most romantic summer ever?

    This book is well written ... Jackamoe and Kate make great leads, but it is wonderful to discover love through everyone's eyes thanks to the letters to Juliet. I could totally see this as a movie on the ABCFamily channel, full of vivid costuming and young fun actors taking place in Verona, Italy.

    At twenty-two, practicing Wiccan Sophia Parsons is scratching out a living waiting tables in her Rocky Mountain hometown, a pariah after a string of unsolved murders with only one thing in common: Her. Sophia can imagine lots of ways to improve her life, but she'd settle for just getting rid of the buzzing noise in her head. When the spell she casts goes wrong, the static turns into voices. Her personal demons get company, and the newcomers are dangerous.

    Story

    I am usually not one to be charmed by cover art, but there is something about this girl on the cover that makes me want to know her soul.

    This book provides several twist and turn through out as Sophia searches to find her history and know who she is. Charles becomes part of the adventure providing amazing gestures of love and true confidence in her every move and true concern for her well being. All the characters are beautifully written and captivate you from the start. There is a link between all the elements and each paranormal life form which adds a new dimension to stories that have been told before.

    Sarah McKee did an excellent job of bringing each character to life. I was pulled in by Ivory's allure, by Charles' driven need to protect, and by Sophia's desire for knowledge. As each new character was added, Sarah brought more depth and richness to their voices that left me hanging onto each word and want more.

    I am not a vampire fan, but this series had me wanting more.

    I am looking forward to book 2...

But everything changes when she discovers Hunter's cheating on her - and she is left trying to decide what to do next. Sydney becomes captivated by Ridge, her mysterious neighbor. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to his playing his guitar every day out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either.

    BRILLIANT.... AMAZING.... PHENOMENAL...Colleen Hoover did it again. I finished it in one evening... loved the lyrics, so downloaded the cd and started over again. This is a must read, better yet, get the audio version. The narrator's provide so much emotion in the reading of the story...

    I don't want to write any spoilers, but how Sydney and RIdge's lives intertwine is so incredible heart wrenching and warming at the same time. Also, Warren provides the right amount of comic relief. I have to place this as my #1 book to listen to this year. If I had as many stars in the sky to rate this book by, I would use every single one.

    Drew Evans is handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed? He’ll tell you he has the flu. But we all know that’s not really true. Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin.

    This has to be one of the best Romantic Comedies I have ever listened to. It is told completely from Drew's point of view... It was like you were just hanging out with him on the couch as he tells you his story. I laughed so hard ... one of those not so cute laughs with snorts and tears kind of funny. And Sebastian York was FABULOUS... totally believable. I just loved it! I just wish I had 5 more stars to add and give this book a perfect 10!

The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    Story

    So I want to start on something positive, I absolutely loved Emma Galvin's Narration. She is one of the best out there.

    As for the storyline, I was very disappointed in the fast then slow pace of the book. It seemed patched together and didn't flow well. I felt all their plans happened so quickly and some very important characters lost who they were in the other two books. Allegiant lacks the intensity and building of anticipation. As for the main characters, I expected more from Tobias who seemed to be wimpy the entire time. And Tris seemed too willing to except everything. And the ending was horrible ... I get some of it but way too drawn out ... The last 5 chapters could have been shortened. I was expecting so much more from this book. Now I left heartbroken and wishing I would have stopped after Insurgent.

    Everyone has secrets. Some are buried so deep, that their existence is forgotten. But a secret never told can turn into a lie. And in love, a lie is one thing: Poison. Reid's in love with Dori, though she hasn't told her parents that she's fallen hard for the one guy they've forbidden her to see. Now she's leaving for college, and Reid's promise not to push her to go public is wearing thin, especially when she can't - or won't - return those three important words he wants to hear.

    Amber Walker and her older brother, Jake, have an abusive father. One night, her brother's best friend, Liam, sees her crying and climbs through her bedroom window to comfort her. That one action sparks a love/hate relationship that spans over the next eight years. What happens when Amber starts to view her brother's best friend a little differently? And how will her brother, who has always been a little overprotective, react when he finds out that the pair are growing closer?

    The story is completely romantic... Liam is the absolute perfect boy friend that Amanda needs. Some of the writing was hard to believe and predictable. All the characters were great, just the story lines need to be developed more.

    I am so happy I downloaded the audio version rather than buy the ebook as Leah Mallach and Sean Crisden brought the characters to life and made you completely invested in what happened to each of them. Without that the book would not have been so entertaining.

    For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You comes the third novel in the erotic, fast-paced trilogy including Release Me and Claim Me. This sexy, emotionally charged romance continues the story of Damien Stark, the powerful multimillionaire who's never had to take "no" for an answer, and Nikki Fairchild, the Southern belle who only says "yes" on her own terms.

    Story

    I was super excited about this last book. It was such a huge let down. The first two books were full of romance and smoking hot sex scenes that had something to do with the overall plot.

    This one just seemed like there was some plot thrown in around sex scenes that all started off with Nikki being angry or emotional about something, and her talking about how his touch changes her mind. I think the book would have been better split in two. That way the sex scenes would have made more sense and the plot would have had more time to develop. Who would have ever thought I would be saying less hot smokey sex scenes ...

    If you started the trilogy, you will need to listen to this book ... Just try to focus on the plot and not the misplaced sex.

    With that all being said, I would love a novella on Jamie ... Maybe hooking her up with Damion's former tennis friend.

I really enjoyed the stories and it makes a huge difference when you can recognize some of the situations that you have experienced. LOVED THIS BOOK ...I listened to it 5 x and bought books for all the women I work with.... It can make a difference.
